British Nuclear Bunkers - Limited Edition 12" with bonus 7"



British Nuclear Bunkers the new album by Luke Haines

 

Beneath the surface of the UK lies a vast and secret network of abandoned nuclear bunkers. Sometime in the future the population of Great Britain has retreated into these bunkers. The reason for this exodus is not clear. Nuclear attack? Chemical attack? Germ warfare? Or perhaps even free will. What is known is that beneath the surface, in the bunkers, people live the utopian dream, communicating wordlessly via a highly developed new subconsciousness. There is no need for money and food is plentiful. The old gods have been forgotten. People now offer prayer to a piece of silverware, referred to as the 'New Pagan Sun', found in a bunker at Stoke on Trent, near to the location of the 1980 Darts World Championship final between Eric Bristow and Bobby George.

 

British Nuclear Bunkers is the new album by Luke Haines. It was recorded using entirely analogue synthesisers. Apart from an occasional vocal the only organic sound used is a recording of Camden Borough Control Bunker being attacked late at night by Luke Haines.

 

Maximum Electronic Rock and Roll.

 

British Nuclear Bunkers will be released by Cherry Red Records on CD  on October 16th 2015 and on Vinyl (with a free 7' single) on October 23rd 2015.

 

Luke Haines has made many albums and written some books. Google him if you are interested. If you're not interested then don't bother googling him - do something else instead.

 

Luke Haines will be converting Bush Hall into a nuclear bunker for a Maximum Electronic Rock and Roll show on October 21st. He will then be touring nuclear bunkers around the UK.

Creation Artifact: The Dawn Of Creation Records 1983-1985
 "When we started Creation, I was twenty three so we made it up as we went along - most of the first batch were mates I had met through my club the Living Room.”
Alan McGee

Creation Records was one of the most important, vital independent labels of the 80s and 90s, born in the post-punk era and progressing to define the Britpop generation.

CREATION ARTIFACT is the first comprehensive box set devoted to the early years of Creation Records. the label was born from a hip London club night and won the plaudits with a string of limited edition 7” singles and a handful of albums – including the acclaimed debut ‘Upside Down’ by the Jesus & Mary Chain.

During this period 1983-1985, the label also issued vinyl by Primal Scream (their debut 45), The Pastels, The Bodines, The Loft, The Membranes, The Jasmine Minks et al.

Housed in a lavish ‘book’ set, CREATION ARTIFACT pays tribute to that seminal period with two discs comprising early A’s and B’s, a third CD of rarities and album tracks, another comprising previously unissued demos and a fifth disc of rare BBC sessions.

Awash with rare memorabilia, a 12,000-word essay from journalist Neil Taylor, band biographies, personal reminiscences and numerous archive finds, CREATION ARTIFACT is the ultimate tribute to the dawn of Creation Records 1983-1985!

N.B: This title is released 25th September 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.

All About The Girls - Lost Girl Group Gems Of The 1960s
Renowned girl group collector Bob Stanley pulls 24 gems out of his collection.

It's a fabulous cross section of this much-loved sixties genre, ranging from the atmospheric and soulful - The Challengers' I Hear An Echo - to the magnificently bratty - Robin Clark's Daddy Daddy (Gotta Get a Phone In My Room).

There are lyrics straight out of a sitcom - The Chiffons' Doctor Of Hearts - and proto Britney mopes like Cathy Carroll's Poor Little Puppet ("the puppet in the mirror is me!”).

Teenage traumas, doop-daps, sha-la-las and doo- langs by the bucketload

Come & See Me: Dream Babes & Rock Chicks From Down Under
'COME & SEE ME is a double CD of 60’s female Beat, Mod, Northern Soul and Psych from the world’s greatest musical melting pot - Australia and New Zealand.
 
This collection is based on the successful RPM Records 'Dream Babes' series which ran for 8 volumes, and is a must have addition for all collectors of that series.
 
The accompanying 20 page booklet is bristling with colour and excitement to match the tone of the music. With rare photos and great stories, this is a detailed insight into a fascinating adjunct to the 60’s Femme Pop genre.  
 
Whilst cutting their own sounds the ‘down under’ scene also naturally drew on musical influences from the US and UK. The cross pollination with the UK inevitable following the gigantic migration during the 50’s and 60’s, with two of the biggest names, Sandy Edmonds and Lynne Randell, born in Liverpool. Others went on to have further careers in the UK.
 
The tracks on COME & SEE ME are taken from a wide range of labels ;  from the Aus-NZ branches of the larger companies such as Philips, CBS, EPIC, HMV , Polydor to the successful indies Festival , Impact, Viking , Astor ,Sunshine, Zodiac , Allied International, GO , Clarion and more. Yet via this collection mostly released outside Aus-NZ for the first time.
 
All tracks hard to find these days. 11 tracks also released on CD for the first time, with one more previously unreleased altogether.
 
This is the second in RPM’s series of collaborations with Frenzy Productions in New Zealand following the Larry’s Rebels album. Created and Produced by Aus-NZ music expert Grant Gillanders. Grant’s ‘Quin-Tiki’s’ collection is currently no.1 in the NZ album charts.

N.B: This title is released 25th September 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.

Return to the Last Chance Saloon (Vinyl Edition)
The Bluetones return!   
 
The Bluetones are one of the most important and successful bands from the Britpop era and are re-issuing their catalogue and aptly kick things off the glorious Return To The Last Chance Saloon.  In 1998, Melody Maker described the album as a "17 year old, good looking and popular” teenager. Now 17 years since its release, has that teenager retained its exciting, fresh and joyous (superior) qualities?  Hell yeah!
 
Return To The Last Chance Saloon is a hit packed, gold selling, Top 10 album that was originally released in March 1998.  Featuring the hit singles ‘Solomon Bites The Worm’, ‘If…,’ and ‘Sleazy Bed Track’ plus mail order only single ‘4-Day Weekend.’
 
"Return To.." is as fresh as your first outdoor breath on a crisp spring day, as adrenalising as a five mile freefall into neat vodka and as heartbreaking as finding an ex's hair on a long forgotten shirt.” Melody Maker, 1998
 
"At times better than anything they've ever done”             NME, 1998
 
N.B: This title is released 30th October 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.
